Tom Wrigglesworth, a celebrated comedy talent, star and creator of BBC Radio 4 show, Tom Wrigglesworth’s Open Letters. He sold out more than 30 dates on a UK tour, including a run at the Soho Theatre in London with extra dates added due to overwhelming public demand. Tom also recently appeared on BBC Three’s Russell Howard’s Good News.
Now firmly established as one of the most original and talented comedians on the UK and international circuit, charismatic wordsmith Tom began his ascent up the comedy ladder in 2002. In 2003, he scooped first prize in Channel 4’s prestigious So You Think You’re Funny competition and a year later he was nominated for Chortle Best Newcomer. Since then, he has continued to take the UK circuit by storm. An articulate and natural raconteur, he possesses an innate ability to riff with an audience like they’re old friends.
Simply put, this Edinburgh Comedy Award Nominee (formerly The Perrier Award) is one of the smartest, funniest stand ups you could hope to spend an evening with: An un-missable performer.
More mirth arrives in the form of Barry Dodds, a circuit favourite and lovable Geordie who’s cheeky grin hides no end of uproarious and unpredictable stories and gags. A finalist in both the Jimmy Carr Comedy Idol competition, and Jongleurs Last Laugh Comedy search, Barry has taken the national circuit by storm, with his mix of disarming wit and irrepressibly cheeky material.
We cast our net wide in searching for the best comedians and we’ve come up trumps with affable and witty Dutchman, Wouter Meijs.
That’s ‘Wow-ter Mais’, and we promise is as funny as he is tall. And trust us, Meijs is very tall indeed. Perhaps that why he’s one of Holland top acts!
Another top quality import is your compere is one of New Zealand’s finest comics, the lovely and energetic Javier Jarquin, who’s fast becoming a sensation on the UK circuit too.
